  5. Brought to you by the letter S and the number 10.

    That looks like a good one (except for 3-cell battery).

  6. I hope you remembered to use the Lenovo Visa affinity page ( http://www.lenovo.com/shop/deals/visa ), which drops the price down to $403.88 from $439.00. You have to buy with a Visa card, but most people I know have one.

    Speaking of that, they’re having a great sale on the X200 right now (not the tablet, just the regular ultraportable) – 33% off, plus another 14% if you use coupon USX14MOREX200. I threw one together in my cart, and it came out to $1096.74:

    Intel Core2 Duo processor P8400 (2.26GHz, 3MB L2, 1066MHz FSB)
    Genuine Windows Vista Business 64
    12.1 WXGA (1280×800), 2×2 UltraConnect II antenna , WWAN, Camera
    Intel GMA X4500 HD
    2 GB PC3-8500 DDR3 SDRAM 1067MHz SODIMM Memory (1 DIMM)
    TrackPoint
    160GB Hard Disk Drive, 7200rpm
    Integrated Bluetooth PAN
    Intel WiFi Link 5100 (AGN)
    Integrated Wireless Wide Area Network upgradable
    ThinkPad X200 Series 4 cell Li-Ion Battery
    7454: 1 Year Depot Warranty – TopSeller

    Very tempting…

  7. I didn’t buy this, it’s a review unit from Lenovo.

  8. Ah… given your earlier post about netbook fever I assumed you bought one :-) Maybe this will help you make up your mind.

  9. I still have the fever quite bad and this will help me decide for sure.

  10. Well do the USA readers a favor that I have not seen on any other review site. All the units sent to reviewers so far have included bluetooth. NONE of the consumer shipped units in the USA market are including bluetooth. The Asian and now European market do. I (and a lot of others) ordered on the first day and specs from that day till the first known person got theirs on 9/24 could never be confirmed by any Lenovo CSR. The first month on the sales site was a moving target of options. Please point this out if they have “baited” your review unit.
